Oscar is a 37-year-old man from Guatemala. He lives with his wife and two sons in the country’s rural highlands. In When not working his job at a pharmacy, Oscar loves hanging out and playing with his children.

A year ago, Oscar began having issues with his vision, but has not been able to afford a doctor’s visit in order to get her eyes checked. A month ago, Oscar was able to go to a local clinic and receive an eye exam as well as a prescription for new eyeglasses.

Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $552 to cover the cost of Oscar’s new glasses. He is scheduled to receive his new prescription on June 9 at our medical partner’s care center, Intituto Panamericano.
